Some fights are not worth fighting,
Because even when we win, we lose.
What’s the point of fighting with our destiny?
Some battles aren’t meant to be won.
A good heart, obscured by the hateful thoughts,
Just isn’t fated to love and to be loved.
The darkness can get suffocating sometimes,
When we forget to light the candle of hope.
Love, life, destiny, all the funny names for things
That can neither be explained fully nor understood.
Loss of a smile and that of a happy soul is
The worst loss of all, sometimes, never to be recovered.
What we lose when we lose our purpose in life,
It’s the loss that will follow us to our graves.
